today while i was at work i noticed some slight itching and soreness down there and i just took a shower and decided to examine. using a hand mirror, i pulled apart my labia and noticed a pea-sized bump on the inside of my labia minora, close to the vaginal opening but definitely *on* the labia. the bump is the same color as the skin around it and is sore to the touch. i used a warm, damp compress on it during the shower which alleviated the soreness a little bit and when i looked again the swelling was slightly less. i looked at pictures and what i'm experiencing looks most like a bartholin's cyst, but i wanted to see if there's anything else it could be. there's some slight discomfort in the area when i first sit down but it fades quickly. i read that most vaginal cysts clear up on their own with minimal intervention (i'm planning on continuing the compresses), and i also wanted to know the point at which i should be concerned and see a doctor. thank you!
